We have a NEW logo!!
Our original logo was created during the 1985-1986 school year. Last year, approximately 33 years later, a decision was made to update our logo. We wanted a new logo that would pay homage to the original, but would have a more modern, iconic feel that would spark a new excitement to our students, faculty, school, and community. With the help of a local graphic designer, Davin Iyamatsu, input of faculty and School Community Council, and many drafts rendered, a new design was completed this school year, 2019. New logo. Same spirit and pride. We are Pearl Ridge Elementary!
Please continue to be diligent about safety. Since our school is accessible from large public sites (Pearl Ridge Shopping Center, Kam Drive Inn and the community park), we all need to be aware of any strangers who loiter near or on our campus. Please be safe and report any strangers to our office.
During school hours, all visitors must check into the office to receive a visitor's badge before reporting to any classrooms or school events.

In 1986, Congress
passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) which mandated the Asbestos-Containing Materials in
Schools Rule, 40 CFR Part 763. It requires all primary and secondary school buildings to be inspected by AHERA
accredited inspectors and to identify all asbestos-containing building materials. The rule further requires the
development of a management plan by an AHERA accredited management planner that is based on the findings of the
inspection. The management plan outlines our intent in controlling the potential for exposure to asbestos fibers in our
In February 2001,
Hawaii Administrative Rules Chapter 11-502 was adopted by the Hawaii State Legislature. These rules essentially mirror
the requirements of the AHERA regulations. In both cases, the rule requires our school to notify parents, teachers, and
employees of the presence and status of asbestos containing material in our school buildings.
The initial inspection
of our school was conducted in June, 2018 and identifies
some asbestos-containing materials. Since that time, we continue to conduct periodic surveillances in June and
December and re-inspections to ensure that the asbestos-containing materials remain in good condition and do not
pose a hazard to our students and staff.
management plan was drafted based on our initial inspection and submitted to the Hawaii State Department of Health.
It outlines in detail the methods we will use to maintain the material in a safe manner. The management plan is updated
regularly as asbestos is removed, or conditions change.
A copy of the
management plan is on file in the administrative office and is available for your review during our regular school hours.
